ESPN Anchor Stuart Scott Dies: Stuart Scott, an anchor at ESPN for 22 years, died Sunday morning after a long battle with cancer. He was 49. Scott, who joined the network for the launch of ESPN2 and became one of its best-known anchors, was known for catchphrases such as "boo-yah!" and "as cool as the other side of the pillow." At the ESPYS on July 16, shortly before his 49th birthday and following another round of cancer surgery, Scott accepted the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance with these words: "When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live."

One of the few credible ESPN anchors gone way too damn soon.

Stuart Scott was one of the few things that ESPN has gotten right in recent years. He was always worth watching. His words about his illness could be an anthem for anyone who is suffering from adversity: "When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live."

If a definition of dignity is needed, just put up Scott's picture. R I P

This disease is personal to me as I'm sure it is to a lot of other folks. It took away my mother at the early age of 51 and it took away someone who I didn't personally know but who felt like a friend.

RIP SS
